Need a sample layoff letter? We have you covered.

A layoff letter can make the reduction in force (RIF) process a lot easier. Instead of having to craft a letter for every RIF, you can come back to this sample, make tweaks, and send it off without all of the stress.  

This sample should be customized to fit your company's culture because a layoff letter isn't a one-size-fits-all document. However, the core message and intent of the letter remains the same, and starting with a great core will put you on the path to success.

The document includes:

  • An example of what a layoff letter looks like
  • What a layoff letter should cover
  • A complete sample for you to customize and use
